Getting your teeth and mouth checked at your regular dental check-up is vital for maintaining good oral hygiene and health. The Plaza Health dentists will be able to detect any dental problems before they get too serious.
At Plaza Health we recommend you get a check-up every six months but some patients might need more frequent check ups. After your dental check-up, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan and estimate of any treatment you might need.
We will discuss all treatment options with you and develop a plan that will protect and restore your mouth at an affordable price.
What happens during a dental check-up at Plaza Health?
We will start by asking you a few general health questions and enquire whether you’ve had any problems with your teeth and gums.
Next we’ll carry out a full dental examination of your teeth, gum, mouth and throat.
If we spot any problems we will offer advice on how to rectify those issues, for example, oral hygiene advice, diet, and so forth.
If you have a build up of plaque and tartar we will recommend that you schedule a hygiene appointment to remove it.
If our dentist finds further problems we will recommend the treatments you will need to address them. Such as fillings to damaged or decayed teeth.
We will give you a dental treatment plan outlining the treatment that you need to restore your mouth to its best.
Your check up check list:
- Review your overall dental health and oral hygiene
- Complete a dental chart of your teeth
- Check if you need any fillings
- Check your jaw and bite
- Take dental X-rays
- Create a dental treatment plan
Your Plaza Health dentist will outline any treatment that you might need and what they will cost. They will be in your plan and can be paid over time if required.
It is routine for the Plaza Health dentist to carry out x-rays during your check-up. X-rays allow us to identify problems that might not be visible to the naked eye.
X-rays can identify decay and cavities, jaw problems, cysts, obsesses and impacted teeth.
Our dentist will decide which type of x-ray you need and explain why you need them.
If you are pregnant the dentist will only perform an x-ray in an emergency situation.
